DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Description: Not only the sign for zero, but also the binary number system, the ideas of metarules, algebraic transformation, recursion, hashing, mathematical logic, formal grammars, and high level language description arose first in India. Indian mathematical science had already reached dizzying heights about 2,500 years ago by the time of Panini and Pingala, considered by tradition to have been brothers. Panini's grammar for Sanskrit, which is equivalent in its computing power to the most powerful computing machine, has not yet been matched for any other language, while Pingala described the binary number system. This classic book of contributions by the leading scholars in the world presents an overview of these seminal contributions to computer science. It also includes chapters on models and computation in astronomy and cognitive science.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Hip Dining Japan showcases the most contemporary and hip restaurant designs in Japan. Reinterpreting the traditional spatial requirements of the Japanese dining space, the designers have created new ways to address constraints as features. Often injected with a twist, some of the featured projects expound the private dining concept as fantasy structures integrated into the dining space, to create a sensational experience for the guests. Others mastered the art of applying uber modern lighting in contrast with their Zen design sensibility, to enhance the encounter and dramatize the ambience. Creating extraordinary interior expressions that are unique to the dining scene in Japan, the restaurants featured reflect a hip dining experience that is visually psychedelic and stylistically flamboyant. Breaking away from the stereotypical conventions of Japanese rural styles of Inns and Ryokans, contemporary Japanese restaurants continue to influence cross-cultural trends, by striking out to redefine what it is to be hip and funky with a cutting-edge perspective that is Japanese in its roots, without compromising its position as an international trendsetter. Curated for the trendy designer and the hip restaurant proprietor seeking inspiration for restaurant concepts that are unique, sophisticated and exceptional, Hip Dining Japan sets itself out as the advocator of visual dining experiences.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Ruth Graham--third daughter of Billy Graham--has discovered through bitter personal experience that God does his great work in the ruins of our lives. As Ruth’s life descended through divorce, depression, and shame; as she bore heartrending parental struggles; and as she faltered trying to make wise choices in the wake of bad ones, she discovered the unending embrace of a faithful, forgiving, and grace-filled God.This book surpasses the testimony of her fascinating story as she brings sharp new insight from the Word of God for all who fear their actions may be beyond forgiveness or their broken circumstances may keep them from being used by God ever again. Through the words of Jeremiah--the weeping prophet--Ruth reveals the God who makes wasted places come to life. The reader grasps the parable of the Prodigal Son as never before as Ruth discloses her own journey through that parable, first as the indignant older brother struggling to understand God’s grace toward her husband’s infidelity, then as the prodigal when her own actions bring deep shame and painful circumstances, and even in her role as the father, running to embrace her own children in the midst of bulimia, drug abuse, and unwed pregnancy.Finally, Ruth includes practical steps in every chapter anyone can take to offer care, support, and hope to the broken people they encounter in their lives and in the pews beside them every Sunday.The broken and those who love them will run with Ruth to the arms of the God they can trust, the Father God who embraces, sustains, and redeems. Foreword by Billy Graham.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A brilliant and chilling dystopia for a new generation in the tradition of Brave New World. “‘Explain to us why you wish to enter The Academy.’” Anaximander, a young Academy candidate, is put through a gruelling exam. Her special subject: the life of Adam Forde, her long-dead hero. It’s late in the 21st century and the island Republic has emerged from a ruined, plague-ridden world, its citizens safe, but not free, and living in complete isolation from outside contact. Approaching planes are gunned down, refugees shot on sight. Until a man named Adam Forde rescued a girl from the sea. “Anaximander, we have asked you to consider why it is you would like to join the Academy. Is your answer ready?” To answer that question, Anaximander must struggle with everything she has ever known about herself and her beloved Republic’s history, the nature of being human, of being conscious, and even what it means to have a soul. And when everything has been laid bare, she must confront the Republic’s last great secret, her own surprising link to Adam Forde, and the horrifying truth about her world.
